adriatica

 

For many years was the only Italian company in Adriatic. Owned by Finmare Group (now named “Tirrenia Group”), in the past years had a lot of routes, also involving Greek Ports. Until 1994 Adriatica linked Italy and Egypt with a 8-day round trip calling at Venice, Bari, Piraeus, Heraklion (Crete) and Alexandria; then they worked mainly with Albania (from Bari to Durres), Croatia (Ancona - Split and Bari - Dubrovnik) and cargo services between Italian mainland and Sicily (Genoa – Termini Imerese; Leghorn – Catania and Catania – Ravenna). Having been in the past one of the best ferry operators in the Mediterranean, recently Adriatica ran a fleet of cargo ships and a few outdated ferries, competing on lines where the other companies rarely operate ferries younger than 25 years old and often near to their 40th birthday. It was a shame that Tirrenia  can operate one of two new ferries every season and Adriatica was abandoned to its destiny by the Italian Government, also thinking that a “Janas” at Ancona, or also a “Vincenzo Florio” in Bari or Brindisi could establish a profitable link to Greece. The hope of a “renaissance” of the Venice – based company after a privatisation were lost when Adriatica brands were cancelled and the ferries and services incorporated under Tirrenia brands, marketing the Croatia, Albania and Tremiti islands services as “Tirrenia divisione Adriatica”.
